Spoke too soon

It's 2 am. I don't like to blog at 2 am, but Paisley apparently doesn't like to sleep now. So, I'm blogging before I lose my mind. On Wednesday, I posted that she was finally sleeping better. I cursed the whole thing.

The past 3 nights have been rough. Tonight is the worst we've had so far. She's so good all day long, but when 10 or 11 pm hits, everything seems to fall apart. She thinks she wants to nurse, but it just seems to frustrate her at night. I rock her and she'll doze off, but as soon as I try to lay her down, she wakes up.

It's one of those days that I don't feel like I have a clue what I'm doing. And I desperately need some sleep.

UPDATE: We finally fell asleep at 3 am. Paisley is quite the night owl. She woke up at 6:30 to eat and then we got up at 9:30. She's in a great mood this morning as always and seems to have forgotten the night we had last night. Which I'm glad for because I don't want her to think I'm a bad mommy when I can't get her to stop crying...


  1. Hey's 2:30 (west coast) here, and I'm feeling your pain. Zachary had a bad night a few days ago and we ended up giving him Mylicon Gas drops...they worked! Sounds like she is comfort nursing to help herself fall asleep, but then waking up uncomfortable. I'm learning that Z is sensitive to spicier foods that I eat, so you might want to check your diet to see if that might help her at night. So sorry, I know it sucks..hang in there!

  2. Yeah definitely try the Mylicon drops....a mom's lifesaver! We gave them to my daughter before every feeding for awhile. It's totally safe! I hope she sleeps better for you tonight!

  3. Even when they get older waking from teething pain they forget, which is wonderful. Sounds like she might be hitting a growth spurt which is hard on their tiny little bodies.

  4. Hang in there! We have those rough times at night with not wanting to breastfeed too. Sometimes I pump so I can just use the bottle! :P

  5. Aw, hang in there, Amber. I totally understand. We went through several weeks of the kids losing their minds during the "witching hour" (basically from 4-10PM). They screamed like crazy. Oh it was so bad. But they definitely go through phases and it gets better. Ours were super gassy and the formula switch saved us big time but I know you're breast feeding so is it possible that whatever you're eating for dinner could be throwing her off?

    *big hugs* I know how hard it is -- blogging is a great outlet!
